COUNT EVERY VOTE:

Sinema expands lead in Arizona Senate race: The Democratic candidate increases her lead over GOP's McSally as election authorities continued to count ballots in the uncalled race. (JAMES ARKIN and ALEX ISENSTADT 11/09/2018, Politico)

Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema expanded her lead to 20,203 votes over GOP Rep. Martha McSally Friday evening as Arizona election authorities continued to count ballots in the state's uncalled Senate race.

Sinema's lead amounts to just over 1 percentage point after more than 2 million votes have been counted. Sinema was up by 9,610 votes earlier in the day before the counties processed approximately 80,000 additional votes Friday -- but slightly more than 350,000 ballots have yet to be counted across the state. [...]

In a statement, McSally said: "Equal protection under the law is a fundamental constitutional right for American voters. As a combat veteran, I fought to protect it. And today, we won an important battle to preserve that right for rural voters in Arizona. I will continue fighting until every ballot is counted."
